What is the recommended carbs intake per day?




There are two answers. One answer is for those who wish to lose weight and one answer is for those who do not wish to lose weight. Here are both answers:

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT

If you are trying to lose body fat, 20-70 grams are recommended, depending on your level of activity. For the list of ‘fat burning’ foods that are low carbohydrate foods, and the list of foods that speed up metabolism, which are also low carbohydrate foods, see the page links, further down this page, listed under Sources and Related Links.

FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT

If you are not trying to lose body fat, 180-230 grams are sometimes recommended. Please note, however, that unlike protein or fat there is no minimum daily requirement of carbohydrate for good health or to sustain life.

IMPORTANT HEALTH ADVICE FOR BOTH GROUPS

However, for the sake of good health, irrespective of whether you want to lose weight, maintain weight, or gain weight, strictly limit (apart from the occasional treat) refined processed carbohydrates. If you are unsure what refined processed carbohydrates are, you will find a list, further down this page, under Sources and Related Links. As deliciously addictive as refined processed carbohydrates can be, they are a major cause of many diet related diseases. The diseases, often referred to as diseases of Western civilization, such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, dental caries, heart disease, and others, became pervasive in the twentieth century primarily because of our high consumption of refined processed carbohydrates.
